To See You by Rachel Blaufeld is an inspiring stand-alone romance. It cuts through all the niceties of society and lets you in to the true inner thoughts of the main characters. I normally love to read about alpha males with confidence literally oozing from them, but in this case, Layton was perfect. He wasn't alpha but he was in no way a push-over pansy either. He was true and confident in spite of his inner monologue second guessing himself. Charli was your typical mean girl - at least on the outside. She found a friend (or rather her friend found her) early in college and was absorbed into the mean girl group. She always strived to fit but never truly, deep down, felt completely comfortable. Always behaving a certain way can make it second nature, so even when she hears herself talking and is inwardly cringing at how she sounds, she cannot seem to stop herself. Thankfully, both Charli and layton found a way out from their worst versions of themselves and eventually evolved into the best version the could be, together. But the journey - oh man, the journey... It was awesome and epic and I absolutely loved this book. Couldn't stop reading!

5 - The nice guy and the b1tch. Stars! I don’t think it is a secret that I am a huge fan of Rachel Blaufeld’s writing, everything I have read by her has left me surprised, a bit emotionally drained, but happy at the same time, because she always manages to give a fresh spin on every story she writes. You go in expecting one thing, and usually end up coming away having a completely different set of expectations met as well. To See You pretty much did the same thing. I got what I was expecting from Charli and Layton’s story, but Rachel added so many more layers to it. I think what bought the story home even more for me is the fact that I have been in Layton’s shoes on more than one occasion in relation to a lot of the situations he finds himself in when it comes to his attempts to try and get to know Charli, his nerves at taking the plunge, and ultimately masking a lot of what he is really feeling with jokes and carefree smiles. Corresponding with her had become my favorite pastime, an addiction I wasn’t willing to admit to having… Both characters are on the cusp of making changes in their lives, I think with Charli it’s kind of a long-time-coming situation, this is a woman that looking in from the outside you would class as having it all, but for Charli, appearances are most certainly deceiving. I’m a twenty-eight-year-old editor in the Big Apple with everything going for me. I’m a catch, right? With Layton, his appearance is everything that anyone first notices about him, and when it comes to Charli initially her assessment of him, leaves a lot to be desired. I was an outcast… She was a perfectionist. But as the book progresses, and you read of Lay’s repeated attempts to crack the shell, and break through the wall she has so skilfully built around herself, you start to realize the vulnerability and insecurity comes in more than just the obvious forms. She tried to hide behind the witchy attitude, the New York snobbery, but for a minute or five, I broke her down. I saw behind her prissy shell and couture armor, and I wanted that. All of that. I loved this story, I think mainly because the author took a character that essentially she knew most readers would initially dislike intensely due to her attitude and actions, and ran with it, it wasn’t overdone, but as a reader it was elaborate enough to leave me with that uncomfortable clench in my stomach for a lot of the first half of the book. But as the story between this couple progresses and you learn of the motivations behind the character that Charli is you understand that while Layton’s flaws are perceived as external issues, Charli is the one that goes on the bigger journey out of the two of them for me. I stared at her eyes and saw my heaven… I think this is a book that everyone will adore, but some people will 'Get it' more than others, especially if you have experienced or are experiencing the struggles that Layton went through, its one of those reads you put down and smile about though, I like a book that makes me smile, even if there are a few tears on the journey to get there. "I won’t forget it." ARC generously provided by the author, and it was, as it always is, my absolute pleasure to provide the above honest review.
